  • MIDWEST MIXED WRITING WORKSHOP

    Here, We Are Writing Workshop with Sherry Quan Lee:  April 13 1-4pm at Eastside Community Co-op

    “The single story creates stereotypes and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue but that they are incomplete.  They make one story become the only story.”

    — Chimamanda Adichie’s, “The Danger of a single story,” TED Talk, 2009.

    Storytelling.  It’s monkey mind.  It’s conversation.  It’s crafting our lives by crafting our words.  It’s claiming the past and imagining the future with no rules of craft or politics except the ones we, individually, choose, the ones that work for us.  Stories that save our lives and enter our world like angels flapping their wings, creating music, something like jazz. Our goal is to break silence and invisibility by reading, writing, contemplating, and conversing; and, to imagine a future by breaking through barriers that have shut us out and shut us up-that have tried to define us. We will look within and without–and shout out, bringing our mixed race stories of intersectional identity to the surface. We will embrace our stories in all of their complexity in order to understand and challenge social or cultural obstacles to loving who we are.  We will look in a mirror and see beauty, strength wit, and wisdom.  We will look at each other and see the same. Participants will summon the past, witness the present, and invoke the future using literature, historical records, photographs, maps, and memorabilia to remember, reveal, confront, embrace, and document their stories.  – Sherry Quan Lee
